Ease of Use:



Casio’s shiny new, minimalist QV-R61 packages a powerful host of features into a sleek unintimidating package that is certain to appeal to those considering their first digital camera.


Casio adopts the commendable policy of producing a camera with an obvious aesthetic appeal coupled with a suite of features designed to get users up and away in a minimum of time. Controls and features are all but hidden on this ultra-compact unit, making for a smooth-handling body. Menu selection and options are slightly unconventional, like World Time and Alarm, but intuitively laid out and self-explanatory with useful help prompts.

The whopping 2” LCD screen is a distinct advantage over similar models in this range, but requires more handling care from users to prevent damage and the inevitable greasy fingerprints. For all its visual appeal, the QV-R61, like so many of its contemporaries, is drop-prone, so users must employ the supplied wrist-strap religiously.
